Privacy Impact Assessment
The Staffing Activity Management System (SAMS) was developed to facilitate the tracking and monitoring of staffing activities within Statistics Canada.
A privacy impact assessment of the Staffing Activity Management System was conducted to determine if there were any privacy, confidentiality and security issues, and if so, to make recommendations for their resolution or mitigation.
The Staffing Activity Management System was developed as a secure system. This tool is used as a method for Statistics Canada’s staffing officers to manage the staffing activities related to a position. It has been added to Statistics Canada’s Administrative Portal which resides on the internal closed network (Network A). Access to SAMS is restricted to Statistics Canada staffing advisors and assistants.
This privacy impact assessment did not identify any privacy risks that cannot be managed using either current safeguards or others that have been specifically developed for the implementation of the Staffing Activity Management System.
